More on Gunwalker
In USA Today.
A known supplier of guns to the Sinaloa Cartel tries to buy 20 guns from an FFL, the FFL contacts BATFE, and ""Our guidance is that we would like you to go through with Mr. Patino's request and order the additional firearms," ATF Supervisor David Voth wrote the dealer in an Aug. 25 e-mail."
Took bloody long enough for things to start showing up in the daily papers...and the AG is still stonewalling Congress last I heard.
A working and workable mechanism to control gun sales is deliberately set aside by the ATF so that weapons can cross the border...in order to prove that weapons sold illegally will tend to fall into the "wrong" hands?
So FFL's in general can be blamed and more closely regulated because these FFL's were trying to cooperate with the ATF?
And Straw-purchasers whose identities were known to the ATF and the FBI were in some cases receiving taxpayer dollars to make illegal gun purchases and hand the guns on to known criminals where they were no longer being tracked but only showed up again at crime scenes and in weapons caches? After federal officers and innocent civilians were killed?

Nothing stupid about the act itself, Kalashnikat. Obama wanted a Reichstag fire as an excuse for gun control, so his minions set it ablaze.
The only stupid here was his minions getting caught red handed with an empty flamethrower afterwards. Now that was world class stupid.

I don't disagree but I still can't decide...
Obama...creative criminal or immature amateur?
